CSX Spur Holston River (South Fork) Bridge
Posted July 12, 2019, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This bridge is composed of pin-connected truss spans. Thus, a construction date of the 1940s does not make sense. Were these spans moved here at that time from another location?
